've seen this before. in 2000, karl rove said, george w. bush was going to win california. they spent millions and millions of dollars on advertising there. they sent bush out there, precious time, near the end of the campaign. i said, tad devine, carter, those of us involved in that campaign, so we're not spending one dime in california, and gore won the state by 1.3 million votes. the wish can't become father to the reality, which is what's going on here. >> like a team trying to talk their way to a championship instead of playing the game, so to speak. shouldn't romney have florida wrapped up? >> he should. he has a lot of -- there, he has structural advantages because he's got the governor and virtually all the statewide officials. but i think the medicare, and the republicans like to say, oh, we've countered it with this lie about a $716 billion cut under obama care, when in fact there is no such cut. there's no cut in benefits. i think that seniors have figured out two things. one, romney wants to replace medicare with voucher care. they don't like it. but isn't it the latino an
ceo of ebay, meg whitman, in california spent $125 million of her own fortune and it didn't work. she lost the governorship to jerry brown who obviously spent a lot less. because you're spending this money doesn't mean that you're persuading voters to your point of view. >> to your point, we have an ad which is from americans for prosperity which imagines a future world in which china dominates the united states. it's a pretty ugly ad. >> yes. >> but it's also dumb. if you look at the front page of the "new york times" today, there's a story that says all the highly skilled people in china are actually leaving to go elsewhere. so it seems like a dumb ad in the likes of that analysis. >> plus, to offend your largest creditor, which clearly it's offensive as well and borderline racist -- >> zen o phobia never hurt some of these organizations. >> there's no reason to offend your largest creditor. we need to work with the chinese, we need to work with the japanese, we need to work with all the people who are financing our massive debt and not offend them in any way. >> many of our viewers

this closely. when i've spoken to people in texas, i've spoken to people in california, they're all focused on this story. seeing the president in the role of president does have an impact on some undecided voters, i think. i think that there was that leadership role which he managed to fulfill, and he fulfilled it well. >> it's just an awkward situation for the romney campaign. since sandy made landfall earlier this week, we mentioned fema. mitt romney has been facing questions about his plans for funding fema and disaster response. something he suggested turning back to the states during a debate last year. attempting to clarify the position, the romney campaign released a statement reading in part, quote, this. i believe that fema plays a key role in working with states and localities to prepare for and respond to natural disasters. as president, i will ensure fema has the funding it needs to fulfill its mission, while directing maximum resources to first responders who work tirelessly to help those in need because states and localities are in the best position to get aid to the individu
that are no intensely democrat like new york and california, and you have states that are intensely republican bike texas and alabama there should be a pretty substantial offset there. whatever the reality in that dozen or so 11 or 12 swing states, whatever the reality is the much wanted ground game, the argument that we heard from chicago over and over again, that they might lose on election day but they'll win the election because of early voting doesn't seem to be shaping up that way, that's why we are in the final days of this election in a dead head. megyn: karl rove talked about ohio and early voting and absentee ballots that were requested. he says back in 2008 barack obama his margin of victory -- start with me on the bottom of this graphic you're seeing. obama's margin of victory in 2008 it was 260,000 votes. i'm rounding. he says already in ohio we've seen a swing towards the republican that has wiped out almost all of obama's margin of victory in the early voting or the number of absentee ballots cast for requested. he says, look the democrats 531,000 votes have already been cast or abse

over the country as far as canada and california. i think we ought to really compliment the utilities for the job they're doing. >> believe me, i'm not criticizing the men, the workers, the women. i'm not criticizing that. i'm not even criticizing you. i'm criticizing this crazy system. michelle and i talked about this last evening. get these bottlenecks, you get the national emergencies, and in comes the infrastructure problem and you ask yourself doctor. and today a lot of angry new yorkers are asking themselves why.doctor. and today a lot of angry new yorkers are asking themselves why. >> the second night in a row where you for example say we should compliment the utility industry. our issue isn't with the industry. it's with the politicians who don't allow prices to go to places that would improve infrastructure and when everything fails, they blame the utilities. so it becomes a pumping bag when in fact you're probably not necessarily the problem. >> it's not a small price tag. you're talking about between $500 billion to $600 billion to bring it up to modern standards with digit

it goes without saying. the president will carry new york and california. mitt romney will carry texas. those states are not in play right now so it's in terms of an immediate impact but the battleground states, widely admired. people that don't like necessarily democrats or republicans, they look to see who's the best candidate and i think michael bloomberg has sway potentially. if it's a close race in ohio, virginia or nevada, maybe anything could have an impact on swaying final undecided voters and bloomberg could have an impact, not a huge impact. i think you're right on that matter but anything could have an impact. >> we thank you. see you at the top of the hour for "the situation room." i want to get back to the aftermath of sandy. we have seen, you have seen the absolute destruction over a couple of days that nothing more shocking than the pictures from breezy point, new york. look at this. where not just the floodwaters but fire has consumed home after home after home. more than 100 before the fire stopped and when you look at the images, can you imagine staying in your home a
